There is very little difference between Berkshire Hathaway’s BRK.A and BRK.B shares.
BRK.B shares were created because Warren Buffett noticed that the BRK.A shares were growing considerable high is cost per share and that these shares were less obtainable by the average retail investor and could only be purchased by either very wealth individuals, unit trusts or mutual funds.
Thus, Warren decided to create BRK.B shares to provide the average investor with the opportunity to purchase shares in Berkshire Hathaway without the huge cost associated with BRK.A.
There are other very small differences, but the above is the only one that really counts.
Xiaomi is a very interesting company with a very interesting business model.
The vast majority of phone manufacturers around the world create a smartphone with a cost of around $100 and then they spend a huge amount of money on marketing and branding. The company then believes that the smartphone has a much higher percieved value – so they sell it for $400 or above.
Xiaomi doesn’t do this!
Xiaomi is aiming to sell all of its products as close as possible to their costs – as they want to have as many products available in the world as possible.
Once out in the world and being use – Xiaomi then looks to drive revenues from providing software and services around these products, which has a much higher margin that the hardware itself. Thus, driving higher demand, more product adoption and thus more revenues from services.

Asana is one of the world’s most popular project and task management software (we use Asana in our office). A week ago Asana filed to go public on the New York Stock Exchange.
Instead of an IPO – Asana has elected to file for a direct listing (which means that they aren’t selling any new shares in the listing only the existing ones).
By the numbers:
- For the year ending Jan. 31, 2020, Asana had a loss of $118.6 million on $142.6 million in revenue. For the year ending Jan. 31, 2019, it lost $50.9 million on $76.8 million in revenue.
- The company says it has more than 3.2 million free account users and 75,000 paying customers with a total of 1.2 million paying users across 190 countries.
- Asana’s biggest shareholders are co-founder and CEO Dustin Moskovitz, Benchmark Capital, Generation Management, and Founders Fund.
- According to its most recent secondary trades, Asana’s stock traded at a volume-weighted average price of $15.82 in fiscal 2020, $15.98 in Q1 2021, and $17.26 in Q2 2021.
Get share price down, for public companies. Still an issue today. Apple at $1000+ makes each share hard to buy for smaller investors.
Match a typical IPO share price, pre-IPO. Start-ups still like to IPO around $15-20 per share, plus or minus. This gives room for a “pop” and a share price still well under $100. If your private, pre-IPO share price is say $40, then a 2-for-1 forward split will get that down to $20, with the same economics for each shareholder and employee.
Apple and Tesla are both splitting their stock at present. This is to really drive some demand with smaller investors and allows them to have ownership over a great number of full stocks.

Nutanix shares have jumped nearly 30% as Bain Capital announce that they are investing $750 million in the company.
Nutanix is a very interesting cloud software giant that has an amazing future. However, its CEO and co-founder Dheeraj Pandey has announced that he is retiring soon.

Jeff Bezos is currently the wealthiest person on the planet due to his controlling stake in Amazon. (However, he has a lot of private investments also).
The wealthiest remaining Rothschild has a net worth under $2 billion. Family fortunes tend to become diluted and squandered through the generations. The Rothschild’s wealth is exaggerated by outdated, anti-semetic conspiracy theories.
Putin is certainly very wealthy, but my guess is that he couldn’t exercise full control over all the money he nominally controls without alienating his fellow oligarchs or tanking the Russian economy.
This leaves Jeff Bezos as the wealthiest person on earth.
